Lindsay’s Tea Party has fallen in love with the The Westgate Hotel. The Hotel is a one-of-a-kind luxury, boutique hotel in San Diego, California, completed in 1970. It is filled with priceless antiques and appointments one would find in an elegant home.
The Hotel was designed as a re-creation of an anteroom in the Palace of Versailles, the Grand Lobby is noted for its magnificent antiques, Baccarat crystal chandeliers, Flemish and French tapestries and Persian carpets. From the moment you enter the lobby doors, you are quickly greeted by friendly waitstaff and promptly seated in palatial sofas with soft pillows and chairs.
The Afternoon Tea is so much more than tiny sandwiches and a hot beverage. This Hotel takes you back to an earlier time period, one of regal grace and charm, stunning antiques and vintage furniture that instantly takes your breath away by it’s glaring beauty.
The Afternoon Tea provides a respite from ordinary life and everyday dining. You are quickly able to relax and rejuvenate to the melodious sounds of a harp while you indulge in a delightful array of delicious tea sandwiches, sweet pastries, scones and seasonal berries.
Your choice of seasonal teas is included and may I highly recommend the English Breakfast or the Pear tea that provides an aroma so pleasing you don’t want to set down your cuppa.
The Menu is not only pleasing to the palate but also filling.
Course 1 includes: Gravlax Cornet with Lemon & Dill Cream Cheese Black Tiger Shrimp & Cucumber with Cilantro Cream Quail Egg and Domestic Caviar on Blinis Saint Andre Cheese with Pesto Arugula Sandwich Prosciutto San Danielle, Goat cheese Fromage Blanc & Tomato Pear Chutney
Course 2 Includes: A Golden Raisin & Sugar Cane Scone with Devonshire Cream Summer Berries & Vanilla Whipped Cream
Course 3 is an assortment of dessert “Petit-Fours”

Wow! What a beautiful spread. The pear tea sounds interesting; I would love to try it.
The Pear Tea was distinct and flavorful. I highly recommend it.

Looks lovely! The picture of the summer berries has me drooling…
I don’t know how The Westgate does it but their fresh berries are bar none, some of the best around. Crisp and sweet and then topped with freshly whipped heavy cream. Truly divine.
